This private buffalo station that borders Kakadu National Park was born from the concept of ‘wild bush luxury’ and its safari bungalows certainly reflect this. Set on stilts that overlook a floodplain, children will be enthralled when they realise that floor-toceiling mesh screens are the only barrier between them and the sights, smells and sounds of the surrounding wilderness. Opentop safari vehicles and airboats navigate the wetlands and savannah woodlands teeming with wallaroos, dingos, birdlife and the elusive crocodile, which, if spotted, makes for an unbeatable classroom tale.
